Is the original date on this one 1897?
Oh, sorry, I don't know how to post just the label?
Uhmn... Looks like it says August 26, 1897. Lower, right-hand side of label. There is some hand-written stuff on it, but everything else seems to be machine printed.
It seems a little strange to have pre-printed cards/labels to place on specimens. How many can a person collect in one day?! Maybe a couple hundred, I guess. And the labels might be replacing the originals that had more hand-written dates and other stuff.
BTW, if you click on the image on the left here, you can then move your cursor over it and get a highly magnified of the area under the cursor. Of course, that covers the posting text area... Oh well... 😛 [rolleyes]
